I love to Brunch.  I know it sounds so adult of me but in all honesty I have loved to Brunch for as long as I could remember.  There is something so perfect about the blending of breakfast and lunch.  Sitting back, enjoying a long mid-morning meal with friends and family, maybe even indulging in a Blood Mary or Mimosa while discussing important topics such as The Real Housewives of______ or who wore it best.   Ahhh Brunch but alas this had all became a memory once I had kids, so I thought.  This past weekend my son and I were invited to Brunch at Fig & Olive Newport Beach.

That’s right people Fig & Olive has Brunch and we got a firsthand glimpse/taste of their French Riviera inspired Prix-Fixe Weekend Brunch and complimentary kids’ menu.  Did you just read complimentary kids’ menu????  Why yes you did.  How is this possible and how does this work? Enjoy a complimentary kids meal (children 10 and under) with a purchase of their Prix Fixe Brunch.  Now you are probably thinking well that’s great and all but how much is their Brunch and what will I be getting. Lucky for you I have pictures and get this for $28 you get a starter, meal and even a little something for your sweet tooth.

 Yup for $28, Executive Chef Pascal Lorange has designed a Prix Fixe menu that will make your taste buds smile without breaking the bank and your child eats for free (restaurant information is at the end of this write up so you don’t have to Google their info to make reservations as in right now!!!– what can I say I’m a giver).  Now are you ready to see what the chef has in store for you?

I’m an OC mom of two and photographer. I love living in Southern California and want to expose my children to all that it offers. I love taking my kids on adventures and capturing their every moment so much so that my kids find it odd if I don’t take their pictures. You can see my work on facebook.com/photosbynaz.
